Defying Gravity

This is my theme song for today. I have always loved this song. (The words are just perfect!) I love, Love, LOVE this version. I would LOVE to be able to sing like this.

Defying Gravity Lyrics:
Something has changed within me.
Something is not the same.
I'm through with playing by the rules
of someone else's game!
Too late for second guessing,
Too late to go back to sleep.
It's time to trust my instincts,
Close my eyes, and leap!
It's time to try defying gravity.
I think I'll try defying gravity,
And you can't pull me down!

I'm through accepting limits,
'Cause someone says they're so.
Some things I cannot change,
But til I try I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I'd lost.
Well, if that's love it comes
At much to high a cost!
I'd sooner buy defying gravity!
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity,
And you can't pull me down!

Unlimited, my future is unlimited!
And I've just had a vision almost like a prophecy.
I know, it sounds truly crazy,
And true, the vision's hazy,
but I swear someday I'll be...
Up in the sky, defying gravity!
Flying so high, defying gravity!
And you can't bring me down.

So if you care to find me,
Look to the Western Sky!
As someone told me lately,
Everyone deserves the chance to fly!
And if I'm flying solo,
At least I'm flying free!
To those who'd ground me,
take a message back from me.
Tell them how I am defying gravity!
I'm flying high, defying gravity,
and soon I'll match them in renoun.
And nobody in all of Oz,
No Wizard that there is or was,
Is ever gonna bring me down!


  1. I'm a pretty huge fan of Idina Menzel, but this is awesome! Thanks so much for posting this!!

  2. Love this song! I have the version from the soundtrack with Idina Menzel as well.

  3. That's a great song. I love the message of breaking free and doing what is right no matter what others think.

  4. I LOVE this song! It has been my theme song for several years now. I've never heard this version of it. Thank you for sharing. I've got tears running down my face and... OMG! She knows how to belt this out. WOW!

  5. I love Idina Menzel also... but there was just something about this one that had me in tears.

    There have been many moments when the phrase, "Well if that's love, it comes at much too high a cost!" has come to me. And then I do what is best for me, instead of trying to win someone else's love.

    I had to listen to it again today... Still loving it!

  6. This girl connects with this song so much better than I've ever felt Idina Menzel connect to any of her songs. I loved her so much until I watched Chess with her and Josh Groban, they sounded so beautiful but were so painful to watch.

  7. I love this song!I wish I could belt it like her. It's amazing. I really want to see Wicked, we should go together!
